Mimi's jump

You can tell that I've had a very action packed weekend! Not so much because of this image but mainly because I haven't posted anything in about 3 days. Sorry about that guys. I decided to take a break over the weekend at Folkstone, along the south coast. This was not a photo break but merely a time to get away from London and all its stress. I got the little lady to act for me whilst some cool ideas came to mind. This is one of them.

My Tip: The key to this shot is exposing for the background and making sure the shutterspeed is above 1/200s, that way you can freeze the movement of the subject. In my case here I didn't need to do much other than pick my location and meter for the sun.

Lovely shot as usual!
Great action ... would love to have seen both feet off the ground ... the decisive moment or something ;-) richard
